Title: Facing another loss
Post by: nonesuch on April 27, 2017, 07:18:23 AM
My husband died seven years ago.  Four years ago, I met my current SO.
Yesterday, he was diagnosed with prostate cancer.  The prognosis does not sound good.  It is likely the cancer has already spread.  I'm angry that his old doctor didn't have this biopsied a year ago,  and frightened that I don't have what it takes to stay strong. 

He's only 65.  This isn't fair.

I'm so sorry.  Those words don't even begin to communicate the feelings I have for you upon reading that.  Thinking of you so much.

there are no words. I hope it isn't as bad as you think. But nope, it's not fair at all.

Hi Nonesuch,

I too feel that "I'm sorry" is so inadequate. I can relate to your fear. Where did we find the strength the first time?

I'm sorry you're both facing this. Someone had the tag line "I'd like to punch cancer in the face" and I agree

Oh, Nonesuch, I'm so sorry. I wish I could do more than write words – they seem so inadequate. I'm thinking of you and your SO, and sending hugs.

nonesuch is in my thoughts quite a bit...wondering how they are doing... seeing that her status has changed from member to guest makes my heart sink. Does anyone on here know her irl? If you have any kind of updates, please share. I'm worried about her.
